b g Captain Rio - Thai Princess (IRE) (Hamas)
Broke well on far side and soon disputed, advantage halfway and pushed clear approaching final furlong, kept on well (trainer's representative said, regarding the apparent improvment of form, that that at Tipperary the gelding was left to run on his own from a low draw after the field had split up in an attempt to find better ground. Having raced alone on the heavy ground, the horse lost interest, was eased down and finished last. He added that, in his opinion, today's true run race on more favourable ground conditions had brought about today's improved performance) (op 8-1)
